The Habits that Shape Us: Cultivating Self-Care, Support and Balance.

But we stay focused anyway. We are all in this together and each day I realize more and more as I connect with other inspired minds that we all go through the same challenges. How we deal with them, however, is up to us.

So let's choose to use our challenges as fuel to grow and learn. To become more.

Life is about engaging from a place of worthiness, practicing self care each day and reaching out for support when we need. There is an abundance of resources at our hands meant to support our well-being and create connection and ease during challenging times.

So let us be open to receiving. This may mean talking to a counselor, a trusted friend- the resources are always available. And endless.

"Ask and you shall receive."

The challenges times pass. The season's change. Practicing self care is what makes these times easier. 

I have found great value in my yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices, in engaging in regular physical activity, in taking time to rest and preparing wholesome meals- meals that are abundant and supporting as we become the strongest version of ourselves.

Making self-care a priority is the best thing we can do. Because when we cultivate self-compassion and self-love, we are that much stronger for the people around us.

Life is too short to not do the things that make us feel good. The habits that nurture our well-being are worth doing each day. In fact, we must do them because feeling happy, free and alive is why we are here.
